and it calls him this. >> mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. >> president obama has secret service protection for his daughters, sasha and malia. asking if the president's kids are more important than yours. oh, my goodness, secret service protection, pretty customary for the president and his family. more bill next. these talking points, that the right have, about the "heavy hand of government" ... i want to have that conversation. let's talk about it. really? you're going to lay people off because now the government is going to help you fund your healthcare. really? i want to have those conversations, not to be confrontational, but to understand what the other side is saying, and i'd like to arm our viewers with the ability to argue with their conservative uncle joe over the dinner table. before the sneeze, help protect with a spray. before the tissue, help defend with a wipe. before the cold & flu season help prevent with lysol. because when you have 10 t
it for 50 percent less than we do. their taxes are not so high or their taxes go do help them opposed to paying for mindless bureaucracy. >> norway is number one. peter, will you renounce your citizenship or america still the best country to live? >> why would i renounce being an american? i have great hope and faith in our country. my feeling is we are the most innovative society and welcomes everyone including my grandfather, a cigar maker if lower manhattan in 1902. this is the greatest place to be in the world. we will get through it. we may need new leadership to do it but we will get there. >> i will read this from gerri willis saying the primary reason for the slip in the ranking decline in the number of united states citizen would believe hard work will get them ahead. you say what, peter? >>peter: she is right. when a president manages to get himself elected by having half of the population pay no taxes and saying i will give you new benefits, by taxing more of the 1 percent because we have a lot of envy and we are jealous, that will encourage people not to work and it will e
for tax reform by closing loopholes for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we consult the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. it turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate over this issue, and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they do not think it is fair to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care or a scientist to shut down like that saving research so that a multi millionaire investor can take less in tax rates then a second trip -- and a secretary. they do not think it is smart to protect and as corporate loopholes and tax breaks for the wealthiest americans rather than rebuild roads and schools or help manufacturers bring jobs back to america. they want us to get our books in order in a balanced way where everyone pulls their weight, everyone does their part. that is what i want as well. that is what i have proposed. we can get it
're going to sell it to me, you have to go through all kinds of registration, pay taxes, do all of other things. we transferred one of our cars to one of our sons here recently. we had to go through the motor vehicle department transfer, whatever. why somebody should be able to go into a gun show and buy any kind of a thing, on any kind of the background check you might have otherwise, at least -- i can't understand that. i really can't. i think we should have stricter background checks. i think they should be real ones. if you have the restraining orders on you, other things, we ought to be able to do that. i realize every state's different. vermont has virtually no gun laws. you can carry loaded concealed weapon in vermont this afternoon if you were there with no permit. we also have one of the lowest crime rates in the country but not because of that. we are as a society we are very law-abiding, but would that stop somebody who is mentally unhinged from going out and using a gun, knife, or anything else to kill people? no. the president's right when he says there are a whole lot -- i'
of these issues. >> if the deficit can only be resolved in increasing taxes and cutting expenses. what expenses would you cut? >> i don't believe we should cut across the board. we should cut strategically. s there -- there is fat, no question about it. i would start there. there is no question that this defense budget is bloated. i'm speaking -- i can tell you the mayors of the country want to see less spending on defense and more spending on bridges and roads and highways and schools. investments that will bear dwiveds down the line. i also said -- i'm a democrat and this does not fly with some democrats but you have to look at some entitlements. you can be for entilettlement reform and not want to turn health care into vouchers. i can tell you mayors have gotten the support of pension reform. there's a number of things we can do that don't decimate the safety net but do, you know, make the kinds of investments. a balanced approach is the only way to deal with deficits at the level and debt at the level that we have in the nation today. it is the only path forward. >> should president obama i
